This book brings together three disparate essays to consider the processes of globalisation and cultural decolonisation in African literature. Is globalisation an evil that has come to vandalise, dilute and re-image the rich African culture and history? Is there a possibility for African societies to reconstruct Africa’s life-sustaining social values, beliefs and customs without irony? Is there a particular writing style that African novelists deploy to subvert globalisation and its myriad agents? What are the choices to Africa’s fragmented identities? These are some of the questions this book attempts to address. The three key essays that inform this book offer the picture of the authors’ ambivalence towards the hotly contested concept of globalisation, described by its blind observers in so many diverse ways like the proverbial elephant in Chinese folklore.
